Today was one of those days without accomplishment. Let’s call it Monday. Every little task became a boulder in the path. This evening I prepared another bowl of this mellow tea and the aroma was strikingly fruity, a departure from the low tones I’ve experienced before.

In my dark bedroom (the shade on the sliding door to the garden drawn because of a headache), the glint of my freshly polished silver-lined cup caught my eye. I figured what the heck, let’s pour from bowl to pitcher to cup. Bowls don’t pour well, so you can imagine the tea spilled in the process. It’s Monday.

I don’t know if it’s the silver, but this evening, the seaweed and nuttiness are subdued and what has come forward oh so gently is a starchy taste much like potato, maybe a new potato. And with that is a surprise mix of fruits, like banana, something red like an overripe strawberry and apricot. Even a hint of cinnamon. The flavors linger lightly in the mouth.

Small victory for a Monday.

So sorry you had a headache, but glad your tea was a consolation!

I felt similar on Thursday. Even work pace was so slow!

It doesn’t matter what kind of teaware I use, if I am pouring tea, I always make a mess. All seven days of the week. :-(
